Bloodborne pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other infectious microorganisms that can cause a variety of diseases in humans. Workers in occupations that include exposure to blood and other bodily fluids are most at risk of contracting infectious diseases.
This short course based on the requirements of OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030), describes safeguards to protect workers against health hazards from exposure to blood, bodily fluids and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).
Students will understand the various ways exposure and transmission of pathogens are most likely to occur in different settings ranging from providing first aid to a co-worker, friend, family member or student in the classroom to handling blood samples and cleaning up blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) in the workplace.
